Lanmei Airlines is a Cambodian airline that is based at Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH) that offers domestic and short-haul international flights. The airline flies to more than 20 destinations across East Asia, with a particular focus in China, where more than half of its route network is focused on.
The airline launched in 2016, with a goal to become the leader in aviation and tourism in Cambodia. In 2017, the airline completed its first day of operations, with flights from Phnom Penh to both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The airlines' logo resembles a peacock spreading its tails. Lanmei Airlines chose this design as it symbolises a propitious totem in both oriental and western culture. The six spread feathers that make up the wings in the logo represents the six Greater Mekong River countries. The logo also looks like a rotating aircraft engine, implying to supply new and steady thrust to these destinations and the other destinations that it serves.
Lanmei Airlines' fleet consists of entirely Airbus aircraft. The airline uses aircraft that are within the A320 family, including the A319-100, A320-200 and the A321-200. Overall, the airline has between 5–10 aircraft within its fleet.
